No FemShep for Mass Effect movie

Legendary Pictures has said that its planned movie adaptation of Mass Effect will focus on the male incarnation of Commander Shepard – in other words, FemShep won’t be making the jump to the silver screen. Surprised?

The news comes via a Q&A with BioWare’s Casey Hudson and scriptwriter Mark Protosevich at the San Diego Comic-Con earlier this year, which Legendary finally got around to posting up on its blog this week.

Among the tidbits dropped include the fact Seth Green will not be playing the role of Joker, and there’s little in the way of any casting news at present. Furthermore, the story will be completely new, and not an adaptation of Mass Effect 1 or 2.
